Canadian Delight

September 1, 2018

Fan Expo Canada not only had a number of reveals but Canadian Legends at that.  Teased early in the week from Hasbro Pulse's insta account many were left debating on what the reveal was set to be.  

 

 MLUK shared the image in the early hours of 30/08 after it started doing the rounds online.  Unbeknown to many a full panel was in line for reveals at the Canadian Expo with a set of new figures up their sleeves

 

 Revealed at the slide show was a recap of some of the Legends already revealed earlier this year but then we had 3 Canadian additions along with a reveal of a tease we saw at SDCC2018.

 

First up we take a look at Vindicator aka Guardian.

 

Guardian (James Hudson), also known as Weapon Alpha and Vindicator, is a fictional character, a superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. Created by John Byrne, the character made his first appearance in The X-Men #109 (February 1978) which was co-plotted by Byrne and his long-time collaborator Chris Claremont. He was designed to be the Canadian equivalent of Captain America, hence his costume markings are modeled after the Canadian flag. Guardian is often confused with Captain Canuck, another Canadian-themed superhero with similar costume and superpowers.[1] The character is the leader of Alpha Flight.

 

 

Mystique - Mystique (Raven Darkhölme)[5] is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, commonly in association with the X-Men. Created by artist David Cockrum and writer Chris Claremont, she first appeared in the comic book Ms. Marvel #16, published in 1978.[6]Mystique is a member of a subspecies of humanity known as mutants, who are born with superhuman abilities. Mystique is a shapeshifter who can mimic the appearance and voice of any person with exquisite precision, and her natural appearance includes blue skin and yellow eyes. She is typically portrayed as a foe of the X-Men.

 

 

Weapon X - Weapon X is a clandestine government genetic research facility project appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. They are conducted by the Canadian Government's Department K, which turns willing and unwilling beings into living weapons.

 

The project often captures mutants and does experiments on them to enhance their abilities or superpowers, turning them into weapons. They also mutate baseline humans. The Weapon X Project produced Wolverine, Leech, Deadpool, and Sabretooth.Experiment X, or the brutal adamantium-skeletal bonding process, written by Barry Windsor-Smith in his classic story "Weapon X" (originally published in Marvel Comics Presents #72-84 in 1991), was eventually revealed as part of the "Weapon X Project." Grant Morrison's New X-Men in 2002 further revealed that Weapon X was the tenth of a series of such projects, collectively known as the Weapon Plus Program, and the X in "Weapon X" referred not (or not exclusively) to the letter X, but to the Roman numeral for the number 10. The first project, Weapon I, pertained to the Super Soldier Project that created Captain America.

 

 

Wendigo - (occasionally: Wen-Di-Go) is a monster appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics.

 

The Marvel character is based on the Wendigo legend of the Algonquian peoples. The monster first appeared in The Incredible Hulk #162 (April 1973), created by writer Steve Englehart and artist Herb Trimpe, fighting the Incredible Hulk in the Wendigo's first comic book appearance.

 

The Wendigo is not one specific person, but instead is the manifestation of a curse that can strike anyone who commits an act of cannibalism in the Canadian north woods. Originally only one person can become the Wendigo at the time, which has led to one Wendigo being cured if another person was struck with the curse. In later years it has been revealed that a pack of Wendigos lived in the Bering Strait. At one point the Wendigo curse infected the Hulk, turning him into Wendihulk, although he was later cured.While normally depicted as a savage beast with no control, Wendigos have appeared as part of various villainous groups, showing some restraint when not fighting. The Wendigo character has also appeared in several Marvel cartoon series.

 

 All designs are still under review for Marvel Approval - the MLUK community seem to back all designs are are excited for the up coming X Men wave... question is, is this a singular wave or a mix of a few?
